The Huchuy Qosqo trail is very beautiful; you can visit some Andean communities, archeological centers and enjoy beautiful landscapes. Its name means small Cuzco, and it was the Inca Wiracocha who ordered that it be built with palaces and temples, because, feeling old and tired, he wanted to leave the government, to leave the palace of Cuzco and to seek rest and tranquility in this place and there would have died with its 98 years of age.From there you can take beautiful views over the valley, you can see covered in snowy exuberant beauty like Pitusiray and the bottom of this privileged view, the city of Calca in Cusco. This demonstrates the knowledge and mastery of the different materials of construction, used with high technology, mainly the adobe; The walls built of this material, with centuries of antiquity, still defy the strong climatic elements of the zone, the seismic movements and, of course, the passage of time. Taking a trip to Huchuy Qosqo is easy, as it only requires time in the adventure, but it is worth the effort and the shortest way is the one that leaves from the city of Cuzco, you have to go to the Sacred Valley, between Pisaq and Urubamba. What is appreciated in this group today is a grouping of terraces with walls as retaining walls, which leave terraces suitable for agriculture.

Foundations and remains of two identical buildings, inside and arranged next to them, in succession and has a long adobe building, of rectangular plan, on a prominent platform, building that has many doors directed towards the valley.

A few loose enclosures, such as forward poles or guard posts, at the edge of the cliff, with visual mastery over the broad valley. Nail stones or false stone beams, belonging to the mojinetes of buildings.It is known by the chroniclers that it was the Inca Wiracocha who ordered the construction of the city of Huchuy Qosqo; it is said that in his old age he was tired and wanted to leave the government and movement away from the capital of the empire of Tahuantinsuyo Cuzco and find peace and tranquility in this place; It is built on a territory occupied by several human settlements, over time, these would be dominated and incorporated into the empire of the Incas in Peru.
